Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic will arrive in Dhaka later this month at the invitation of AK Abdul Momen. This information has been known from the sources of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
During his visit, two memorandums of understanding (MoUs) are expected to be signed between Dhaka and Belgrade on visa-free travel for diplomatic and government passport holders and Foreign Office Consultation (FOC) between the two countries.
An official of the ministry said that, the Serbian Foreign Minister will pay a two-day visit to Bangladesh on January 27. He will be returning from a visit by the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh to Serbia. During his visit, two MoUs may be signed with regular FOC meetings on visa exemption and enhancing relations between the two countries.
Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen visited Serbia in mid-October last year. On that trip, Momen met with the country’s president Alexander Vusik. He also had separate meetings with the Serbian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Labor and Employment and Trade, Tourism, and Telecommunications.
In a meeting with the Serbian President, Momen requested the country to take skilled and semi-skilled workers from Bangladesh in various fields. Moreover, Momen emphasized building trade and economic links between Dhaka and Belgrade.
On the other hand, in a meeting with the Serbian Foreign Minister, Momen emphasized the need to expedite the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on FOC, visa waiver, and defense cooperation.
